 An AppleTV is not required for every TV in the house.If there are Multiple AppleTVs, they could each act as a HomeKit controller or act as a relay to the accessories.. Some do, and some don't. Regardless, there are many other accessories that don't have bridges. In addition, bridged accessories can be accessed directly (bypassing the bridge) or through the bridge.In Apple's HomeKit preso they say that all the HomeKit accessories can be controlled by an iPhone (or other...

I suspect that there are hooks in iOS and Yosemite to support enhanced Maps feature -- but the APIs are not included (or not exposed to...
Thanks for the link ...I've been busy reporting problems (and some not-so-subtle feature requests).The linked form is a better vehicle.I find that Google, sad to say, does a much better job of parsing search requests, evaluating context -- then selecting the proper map results.For example (from anywhere) when you use Apple Maps:st pauls, london -- displays the proper mapst peters, rome -- displays a location in upstate new yorkOr while displaying jerusalem:both temple of...
